Tomoe is one of the earliest Queen’s Blade characters released and has been one of the most enduringly popular, being the subject of the Noto Mamiko-voiced Bitoshi Gaiden vol. 1 artbook / drama CD as well as several doujinshi. With Megahouse’s Queen’s Blade figure line famous for its castoffability a preorder of this item was inevitable; but how does the Excellent Model reputation for quality hold up in the face of her abundant mikoliciousness? Quite well, thankfully.

Heisei Democracy figure review: Megahouse Excellent Model CORE Tomoe PVC from Queen's Blade

Tomoe’s designer Eiwa is one of those amazing artists whose brain I imagine would be incredibly delicious to eat and absorb all the talent nutrients to fuel my own perverted illustrative ambitions. That said I haven’t been incredibly smitten by either of his Queen’s Blade designs (the other being Risty); I think he works better in slightly more exotic and scantily clad idioms. Regardless, Tomoe’s design is still solid, and one quite worthy of figurification.

The pose chosen for this figure can be found on the very first page of Tomoe’s Queen’s Blade combat artbook:


the illustration from the Queen's Blade Tomoe game artbook that serves as the basis for this Megahouse Excellent Model CORE PVC figure

Queen’s Blade Tomoe

While not the most dynamic or interesting it sure beats the pants off a bland standing pose, and provides the opportunity when cast off to show off a lot of really nice lines. Sculptor Yamachichi does an ace job of capturing the spirit of the character, such as it is, and providing a faithful rendering of the illustration; I don’t think there’s anything about this kit from an artistic perspective that can really be cast into question – it’s all around solid.

The Megahouse production is typically excellent as well, with shading in all the right places and meticulous attention to every detail of the costume (and what’s underneath). My only gripe is that following the (very easy) castoff there were some faint yellow markings left behind on the left leg and waist; I’m guessing these were made more pronounced by the time allowed for the figure to sit gathering dust in a warehouse before it reached me (note to self: don’t bundle orders with Orchid Seed figures in them, as they are prone to delay).

One could make a bit of a fuss about the trim of the panty line or how the costume isn’t readily replaceable once removed, but any complaints in the end are trivial: the production quality and sculptural integrity of the kit are unquestionable, the castoff job is gorgeous (the dimples in her lower back slay me with hotness) and it all combines in a package that’s easy to recommend to any bishoujo figure fan.

Overall Score: 9/10

+ knockout sculpt
+ typically high Megahouse production quality
+ easy castoff
+ looks great both clothed and not

o pose is hard to cipher, somewhat bland
o original design could be more exciting

– inability to easily put her clothes back on may grant you social pariah status when guests stop by unannounced
